    Unanswered: PHP and dbase

    Is there a known way where I can connect to dbase via PHP WITHOUT using the php-dbase functions which are crap, because they cannot lock. Etc.

    I'd very appreciate any help!!!

    hello Wilsman,

    dBase files (either DbaseIV or FoxPro ) can be accessed by means of ODBC, and then use an abstract layer such as ADODB (search google for this php superb class) and display the records.

    If the dbf files are on a "database" (this is a foxpro thing) then locking and transactions are supported, if not then you are on your own.

    AFAIK.
